You are listening to the Expresso Entertainment Update. Here is the latest news from the world of Television and OTT Platforms brought to you by The Indian Express.
Let us begin today’s bulletin with news on the much-awaited Khatron Ke Khiladi season 12. It is set to launch soon on Colors. Fans are divided among the many popular celebrities who will show off their adventurous side on the reality show. While these celebs fight fears as they indulge in some daredevil stunts, host Rohit Shetty revealed that many in the audience feel that they are only ‘acting’ and the action-packed stunts are all computer-generated. Rohit said: “Every stunt is performed by these contestants themselves”.
“Days after airing the last episode of The Kapil Sharma Show‘s recent season, the team is off to Vancouver for a show. Kapil recently shared a few clicks with the actors of the popular show, ahead of taking off to Canada. The photos have Kapil Sharma posing with Krushna Abhishek, Kiku Sharda, Chandan Prabhakar, Sumona Chakravarti, and other crew members.
The Kapil Sharma Show had its season finale with the JugJugg Jeeyo special episode. The show is set to return soon. It was replaced by India’s Laughter Champion on Colors recently.”
“Meanwhile, supernatural drama Naagin 6 is keeping fans entertained with some thrilling drama. The Tejasswi Prakash starrer saw the entry of a number of magical creatures, the most recent being the Yeti. Producer Ekta Kapoor gave a glimpse of the mammoth mythical creature that her team created. Through the caption, she mentioned that while there’s not much budget when it comes to TV, she loved the Yeti.
Ekta Kapoor wrote, “Vfx on tv budgets but not bad the yeti fought Nagin and we loved it”. Fans, on the other hand, had mixed reactions to Naagin 6’s track and visual effects. Apart from Tejasswi Prakash, the Colors weekend series also stars Maheck Chahal, Simba Nagpal, Urvashi Dholakia, and Sudha Chandran.”
“Moving on, the makers recently released the first look of the Orcs from the Amazon Prime Video show. Since The Rings of Power will take place in the Second Age, we will see the orcs scattered across Middle-earth. Here, the orcs are low in numbers and are fighting for survival. The head of The Rings of Power’s prosthetic department Jamie Wilson and executive producer Lindsey Weber, explain what exactly is in store for fans. Weber says, “I love creature design, so I’m very happy to talk about this stuff. The very first page of JD and Patrick’s bible was about Orcs, them being the showrunners.”
The series is all set to release on 2nd September 2022 on Amazon Prime.”
“In other news, the third season of Umbrella Academy was released on Wednesday, and the first reviews suggest that this could be the best season of the Netflix series so far. Based on the comic book series of the same name, this season incorporates the real-life transition of Elliot Page into the show and if the reviews are to be believed, this has been handled gently.
The Verge’s Charles Pulliam-Moore wrote, “The Umbrella Academy opens itself up to a slew of new possibilities.” Collider’s Nate Richard called it an “intimate and beautifully bizarre third outing”.
ComicBook.com’s Spencer Perry called it the “weakest season of a still-great series”.”
“Meanwhile, British star Peter Capaldi and actor Cush Jumbo will topline a new thriller series for streaming service Apple TV+. Titled Criminal Record, the show has received an eight-episode order from the streamer, the company said in a press release.

Dubbed as a powerful, character-driven thriller set in the heart of contemporary London, the series will feature Capaldi and Jumbo as two detectives in a tug of war over a historic murder conviction. Criminal Record, which comes from Paul Rutman, touches on issues of race, institutional failure, and the quest to find common ground in a polarized Britain. The series is currently in production.

MX Player recently released the trailer of their upcoming series Miya Biwi Aur Murder. The show stars Rajeev Khandelwal and Manjari Fadnnis in the lead roles. Going by the trailer, Miya Biwi Aur Murder is packed with lots of action, comedy, and some amount of thrill too. Talking about the series, Rajeev Khandelwal said in a statement, “It was very exciting to team up with MAD films and be a part of something as mad as this. The director Sunil, Manjari, I, and the rest of the cast was so charged up while shooting for the show that it shows on-screen”. Miya Biwi Aur Murder releases on July 1.
“Lastly, Hansal Mehta is set to direct a SonyLIV series based on RK Yadav’s book Mission R&AW. The show will trace the journey and exploits of Rameshwar Nath Kao, the first chief of India’s foreign intelligence agency R&AW. The series will also showcase intelligence operations that have shaped the geopolitics of the subcontinent. Apart from the SonyLIV series, Hansal Mehta is also working on the follow-up to the critically acclaimed Scam 1992 titled Scam: 2003. The new season will tackle the 2003 Stamp Paper fraud by Abdul Karim Telgi. Theatre actor Gagan Dev Riar will headline Scam: 2003. Mehta will serve as the showrunner and direct alongside Tushar Hiranandani of Saand Ki Aankh fame.
